It seems every other day some one's "rep" meets defeat
due to some thoughtless thing they decided to tweet.
Yet people continue to sign up by the hundred dozens.
(I finally caved in many years after my young cousins.)
I choose not to tweet about my mundane daily life.
Keeping things strictly business should help me avoid strife.
It seems a slippery slope from cheerful chatter to thoughtless tweeting.
The temptation will always get to some - history bears repeating.
I, for one, would not mind a few more laughs at their expense,
but it seems only right to warn the public to use some common sense.
Being the subject of a racy "reading" by comedians Bill and Jane
could haunt a person enough to make them go insane.
Even if you aren't as powerful a man as President Barack Obama,
I recommend you don't tweet anything you wouldn't show to your mama...
or whatever other person best known to keep you in line.
Pretend they're watching you're every move, make them proud and you'll be fine.
Twitter can be a good tool if you don't behave like a fool,
but fall in the cesspool and you'll be ridiculed like in grade school.
